South Bay Digs • April 20, 2012

The year was 1990, the summer I graduated college and packed up my car and moved to Hermosa Beach. The sun, surf and beach vibe was a dream come true for a twenty two year old looking to start his post college life. It was a different Hermosa then – my friends and I would hang out and watch bands at the Lighthouse Café, grab schooners at the HBYC, drop into the Poop Deck after a day at the beach, listen to DJ Roy at BBC (upstairs at Besties) and always be cruising the Strand…those were the days!
